Crybaby

It doesn’t rain here like it rains there, no.
July and monsoon, the low-lying clouds
is an armory. Water rages rather than seep
to a stream of liquefied needles, knives,
silver against silver.

And you do not get me love when I say it,
how when it rains, there’s a sea in the skies
raring to dump its contents from inside its slit
belly, neither when I tell you the first glimpse
of a nimbus is an omen of a disaster.

It doesn’t rain here like it rains there, no.
What you know of rain is languid drops,
falling almost as if in afterthought and trickles
on glass window. And I know I’ve always cried
the hardest between us two.

The cross is planted everywhere in the world….And if the cross plunges more deeply into God’s chosen ones, it is because He has Himself prepared favorable soil.
A priest said about a woman who was struggling with her feelings: ‘There are times when you have to take your heart, throw it at God’s feet…and step on it.’ How hard that is, but how mysterious! At that moment, miracles of grace take place, and one hour of such suffering is equal to a life given over simply to doing the good.
—Servant of God Elisabeth Leseur

“you shouldn’t be depressed, people have it worse than you”

finally, after years of searching, the person with the worst life ever is found. formally, they are granted permission to be sad. but only them. only they have earned it. no sads for anyone else at all ever

At one magical instant in your early childhood, the page of a book—that string of confused, alien ciphers—shivered into meaning. Words spoke to you, gave up their secrets; at that moment, whole universes opened. You became, irrevocably, a reader.

WHAM!

“Sister Mary Kenneth Keller, from Cleveland, Ohio, was one of the first women, and very likely the first woman, to receive a Ph.D. degree in computer science in the United States. Keller entered the Sisters of Charity, a Catholic religious order, in 1932 and professed her vows in 1940. Later, she studied at DePaul University, where she received a B.S. degree in mathematics and an M.S. degree in mathematics and physics. In 1965, she received a Ph.D. degree in computer science from the University of Wisconsin. Her dissertation work involved constructing algorithms that performed analytic differentiation on algebraic expression, written in CDC FORTRAN 63.

“As a graduate student, Keller also studied at Dartmouth, Purdue, and the University of Michigan. At Dartmouth, the university broke the “men only” rule and allowed her to work in the computer center, where she participated in the development of BASIC.

“After receiving her Ph.D. degree, Keller accepted an offer of a faculty position at Clarke College in Dubuque, Iowa. Keller founded the Computer Science Department there and chaired it for 20 years. She also established a master’s degree program for computer applications in education.

“Keller felt that women should be involved in computer science and especially in the field of information specialist. In her words, ‘We’re having an information explosion, among others, and it’s certainly obvious that information is of no use unless it’s available.’ Keller’s vision extended eyond education and reached toward artificial intelligence. ‘For the first time, we can now mechanically simulate the cognitive process. We can make studies in artificial intelligence. Beyond that, this mechanism [the computer] can be used to assist humans in learning. As we are going to have more mature students in greater numbers as time goes on, this type of teaching will probably be increasingly important.’ Sister Mary Keller died at the age of 71 but has left a legacy of computers and education at Clarke College.”
